-- supporting women -- are much more popular than mitt romney's policies. i think that the obama team is going to double down on that over the next few weeks. >> brett, your reaction to that? >> well, you know, on wednesday night, those policies didn't look so good. a debate's about a competition of ideas, especially a political debate. so the president's got to be able to defend those policies if they truly are superior, and on wednesday night he didn't do a very good job of doing that. >> columnist david brooks and peggy noonan praised romney's performance after its missteps in recent weeks. brooks writing this. romney finally emerged from the fog and at long last began the process of offering a more authentic version of himself. noonan wrote this, america got its first sustained look at the good and competent mr. romney. how much do you think does the public support of leading conservaves like the two of them help romney, not just with republicans but with undecided voters? >> i think it helped some, but the person who helped governor romney most was governor romney. on wednesday night, he
remember this, it went up over $5. it was when obama ran. >> reporter: take a look at what is happening in san jose. according to fuel gauge report a week ago regular unleaded was $4.16. yesterday $4.38. today the average is up to $4.54. that is a jump of $0.38. even though prices are high in the bay area, we are finding that in los angeles the prices are even higher. some gas station owners are shutting down their pumps because they don't want to charge the higher prices just to break even. >>> let's check in with sal. 5:38 is the time. how is traffic? >> good morning. traffic is still doing pretty well. in most areas. we haven't seen a lot of problems out there. we've had minor crashes that weren't causing any slow downs really. let's take a look at 80 westbound. no major problems here. it's a nice looking drive all the way through. it is getting a little more crowded here. although there is not a backup just yet. if you are driving on 80 a little farther up that traffic is off to a start. as it moves toward us it has enhanced that high cloud deck and low cloud deck. our cooling trend
life? let's listen to president obama as he answered that question in the debate this week to inspect the first role of the government is to keep people safe. that is the most basic function, and as commander-in-chief, that is something that i have worked on and thought about every single day that i've been in the oval office. but i also believe that government has the capacity, the federal government has the capacity to help open up opportunities and create ladders of opportunity and create frameworks' where the american people can succeed. the genius of america is the free enterprise system and freedom, and the fact that people can go out there and start a business, work on an idea, make their own decisions, but as abraham lincoln understood, there's also things we do better today. so, in the middle of the civil war, abraham lincoln said let's help finance the transcontinental railroad. let's start the national academy of sciences. let's start the land grant colleges because we want to give the gateway if they are giving opportunity we are all going to be better off. that doesn't re
the last week, has been a softer tone. they haven't wanted to be as confrontational with president obama. you have this line that mitt romney has been saying now throughout the entire, you know, election, president obama's a really nice guy, he's in over his head. i don't think that's the right attitude to take into the debate. i think he'll have to be aggressive. he'll have to be confrontational. doesn't mean he has to be nasty. there's a difference, but he has to be very aggressive, look like he's being aggressive to the viewers. >> greta: when he says he's over his head, that's a little condescending, that kind of thing. i think he'd be better saying he's wrong. >> well, either way. he has to seize this moment entirely. think back to those debates. how often did each of those candidates say, i want to be the guy who stands on the stage debating the president? if he can deliver a very strong attack against him, i don't see why that wouldn't bring republicans, anyone upset with the president with romney. he has to take full of that opportunity. there are republicans who dream of the opp
, "the reason we don't read about afghanistan anymore in the paper, it's succeeded. barack obama was saying we need more troops there. again, we spend in three weeks on combat missions in iraq, more than we spent in the entire time we have been in afghanistan. that will change in a barack obama administration. >> senator, you have quite a record, this is the next question here, of being an interventionist. you argued for intervention in bosnia and kosovo, initially in iraq and pakistan and now in darfur, putting u.s. troops on the ground. boots on the ground. is this something the american public has the stomach for? >> i think the american public has the stomach for success. my recommendations on bosnia. i admit i was the first one to recommend it. they saved tens of thousands of lives. and initially john mccain opposed it along with a lot of other people. but the end result was it worked. look what we did in bosnia. we took serbs, croats and bosniaks, being told by everyone, i was told by everyone that this would mean that they had been killing each other for a thousand years,

with a little bit, as his position has been changing just in the past couple of weeks. on medicare, the republicans had been ahead or even even with the democrats not long ago. but today president obama leads on medicare by 12 points. leads on medicare by even more than he's ahead on health care in general. it's also interesting that the president's middle east numbers, specifically, is ten points higher than his advantage over mr. romney on the broad issue of foreign policy. and then we get into some real contested ground. the president is favored on the issue of taxes, but on the generic question of who would be better trusted to handle the economy, mr. romney leads by three. on the deficit, mr. romney leads by nine. on all of these issues, that's the one on which he has the strongest trust from voters as compared with president obama. and that confidence in mr. romney on the deficit turns up not just in the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, but in a lot of national polls. even though he hasn't given a lot of details as to how he would handle the deficit as an issue. the bottom lin
